Good Morning!

I woke up this morning and made myself a java concoction with hazelnut coffee, a large swirl of Reddi-Whip (whipped cream in a can), and a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar. It's my new favorite way to wake up in the morning. And don't you love my new mug from Target?
This little box of sweet inspiration came over the weekend from my swap partner Hope. It's the first Petite Inspiration Box I've received from participating in Speckled Egg's swap of the same name. When I opened the package and saw this box I thought to myself, "Who even cares what is inside cause this box is gorgeous!" But eventually I did come to my senses and opened it and this is what I found:
What a sweet sparkley greeting all wrapped up in waxed paper and pink seam binding. Hope's attention to detail really is exquisite.

And look how neatly she has everything all tucked in. Lots of vintage treasures were inside that tiny box. Thank you so much Hope!
And another hug goes out to my friend Elizabeth who bestowed this wonderful Friends Award on little ole me! The sentiment behind this award is, "These kind bloggers aim to find friends and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement." Isn't that exactly what this world of art blogs has opened up to each and every one of us? So many friendships have been formed with people we might never have connected with if it weren't for our blogs. How lucky are we?!!! :)

Hello Beautiful New Friend! I just received my mail and received an equally fun & beautiful box filled even more awesome treasures. The browns are so pretty and are so me. Thanks so much, I will blog soon I promise, although I will not be able to capture the exquisiteness of your work! Blessings for a wonderful evening.
XO~Hope

Had to come visit as Hope is one of my dear friends. I am constantly amazed at how she can take something ordinary and turn it into an absolute treasure. It's obvious from looking through your posts that you have that talent too!!
